The Gin Distillery, Whitechapel
A former Gin Distillery, Landlocked on two sides, and with flats running the entire length of a third, Rupert Scotts inspiration to create a sanctuary of light, space and calm that defies its geographic constraints succeeds in this space.
Exposed steelwork with timber and polished concrete surfaces make up the ground floor living spaces with large Crittall windows. Throughout the interior, carefully placed light wells, screens and openings allow patterns of light to drift across the surfaces. A black steel staircase at the back of the home emerges into a sun-filled landing off which sit two modern cabin style bedrooms and a bathroom with Scandinavian redwood ceilings. An enclosed terrace on the upper floor allows for a tranquil outdoor escape. Located in Whitechapel, E1.

Shortlisted for the Stephen Lawrence prize and awarded a RIBA London Award in 2015. It has been featured in many magazines including Grand Designs Magazine and the Sunday times Homebuilding and renovating magazine. The house has been built around a 100 year old pear tree, which was once part of a Victorian fruit orchard, creating an internal courtyard bringing light and air to the centre of the building. The house is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day with the lowered snug in the centre of the building forming cosy retreat with views out into the garden. The building was designed to blend into its wooded back land context as far as possible and views through the building are defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees. The ground floor walls are cast in concrete with vertical timber and contrast the polished concrete floor creating abstracted reflections. The house features crafted joinery made from oak veneered ply with brass detailing. Two handmade chandeliers, hang in the double height void spaces at either end of the glass link. The smooth ply finish staircases create dramatic, naturally lit spaces from the roof lights above. The interior of the house is furnished with mid-century style modern pieces and lighting. PLEASE NOTE curtains are now hung in the main spaces.
